Cheap Dinosaurs - "Cheap Dinosaurs"

8-bit rock group Cheap Dinosaurs just released their self-titled LP, which contains nine tracks of progressive chip-rock. Highlights include the melodic, catchy "Stroll" and nicely happy "Gnip Gnop". The album is available from Data Garden on BandCamp, in both digital and limited edition "seed paper" versions.

Xyce - "Biscuit"

Retro Amiga pop duo Cerror and Xylo are back, together known as Xyce, with a brand new album. "Biscuit" is a twelve-track collection of pleasant Amiga and Atari ST tunes, available for a scant two Euros. In an interesting move, the album also includes a dubstep-influenced bonus track entitled "Rundown", which, while not strictly 8-bit, provides a notable close to the happily-styled chiptune release.
